West Fraser Timber Seeks Acquisitions

West Fraser Timber Co. Ltd. (TSX:WFT) is seeking acquisitions. Ted Seraphim, West Fraser Timber's President and Chief Executive Officer, said "So, it just continues to support our conservative approach to acquisitions. We're going to continue to be conservative. We're going to continue to look at opportunities, but we don't feel the pressure to make an acquisition just for the sake of deploying our cash. If we don't see a good acquisition, and we build some cash balances, well, we'll look for other alternatives. And as you can see last year, we judiciously repurchased some shares, and will continue to look at that avenue as well when it makes sense to us."
